Natives' Briscoe joins Minot State

Neepawa Natives forward Sam Briscoe is joining the Minot State Beavers.

The 21-year-old forward has committed to the North Dakota school’s hockey team after scoring 14 goals and notching 43 points in 60 Manitoba Junior Hockey League games with the Natives last season.

“Sam is a playmaking forward who will give us immediate offence to our lineup,” Beavers head coach Wade Regier stated in a team news release.
